We have been having an abundant of basil, and our freezer is quickly filling up with pesto among other things. We needed to find a way to go through our basil quick. The Taiwanese three cup chicken dish came to mind. We took the quick way of making it due to our limited time, but it’s still delicious nonetheless.
Chopped garlic are cooked over heated vegetable oil with a couple spoons of sesame oil. Then bite size chicken go in. Toss chicken around until it’s brown. Add a cup of soy sauce, half cup of sugar, and half cup of rice wine. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Toss in a cup of chopped basil at the end. Serve with rice.
